Cisco VPN :: 5520 AnyConnect Can Auth A Machine And Then A User?
Aug 10, 2012
We are rolling out a new VPN infrastructure utilizing ASA 5520's (one active/standby cluster at each of our two sites) and making the conversion from the old IPsec client over to AnyConnect 2.5 clients. We do have AnyConnect Premium licenses at both sites, but are not utilizing ISE. What we want to do is first auth the machine that's trying to initiate the AC VPN session to determine if it a company-owned machine (with the idea that only co-owned machines can connect), and then auth the user using RADIUS, which uses attribute 25 to assign them into groups for policy application. We have the RADIUS piece working now, but is there a way to first do the machine auth, and then the user auth? We don't just want to use something like cert-based VPN because if the machine gets stolen (or a non-co user otherwise gets into the OS) then we don't want the non-legit user to be able to establish a VPN session just because they have access to a company machine. The other rub is that the machine auth solution must be cross-OS compatible (we use a mix of Windows, MacOS and Linux on the machines that should be allowed to VPN.)
I just started configuring AnyConnect with ASA 5520 that uses Cisco SecureACS to pass radius authentication. I configured two profiles with different split tunnel restrictions and what I discovered is that when the client connects to the ASA, they are provided a choice of these two groups (I guess there is no way to restrict this) and I can log into either one with any user account. How do I restrict this so that the user can only use one profile? Currently users capable of VPN would be placed in one specific AD group so that is what SecureACS checks. Is there a sample configuration guide to handle multiple profiles with different levels of access?
We are using an ASA 5510 and remote access (SSL VPN) using the AnyConnect client.
Is it possible to display a user message when a user connects using the AnyConnect client, matching a specific dynamic access policy? Can the message be displayed when the action is "Continue" rather than "Terminate"? I can't seem to get this to work and wondered if there was a LUA function to do this.
We have a DAP which gives a restricted ACL when the user's anti-virus is out of date, and I wanted to notify the user to update their anti-virus and reconnect.
I have an ASA running 8.2.x code with AnyConnect 2.4.x.I have both Radius and LDAP (AD) AAA available.If a user connects from a company owned laptop, I want to push down AnyConnect client ProfileA (with scripts to map drives etc...) and network ACL's set A.
If a user connects from any other computer, I want to push down AnyConnect client ProfileB (no scripts etc...) and network ACL's set B.
What I would like to do is CSD to do a machine certificate check (for presence of a cert from my private CA) and to assign a EndPoint Policy attribute (Managed on successful check or Unmanaged on failure). I can then use DAP to tailor the ACL's that get set.
It seems like the only way to handle AnyConnect client profiles is with Group-Policy. Using LDAP I can assign a user to a Group-Policy, but I have no way of determining is they are coming in from a company laptop or not when assigning the Group-Policy. DAP can not assign an AnyConnect client profile.
If at all possible, I do not users to have to pick a conenction profile or use different URL's.
I am trying to setup up a rule to allow wireless access only to users in my AD when they use computers from my AD.I have Machine authentication working on it's own (computer boots up and connects to wireless - confrimed by ACS logs) I have User authentication working But when I try to creat the floowing rule:it does not work.
I am using ISE 18.104.22.168.My first question:I want to know the relation between the attribute "WasMachineAuthenticated" and the MAR (MAchine access restriction in advanced setting for AD).Is-it the same or not ?Once you time out, you need to do machine auth again. What is the timer ?Using the attribute "WasMachineAuthenticated", is-it the same timer that you configure in MAR ? In a distributed environnement, is the information about machine previously authenticated replicated to all policy node ?Because, if a swicth has 2 radius-server, we are not sure that it will point everytime to the same server.
For our wireless, we enabled the machine authentication, but we want to bind the machine authentication and user authentication together which means they need to meet both requirements to access the wireless, how can we do this? Right now looks like as soon as the machine is authenticated, it can access the network, no user authentication needed.
- On ACS we were doing 802.1x Authentification over an Activedirectory, assigning Vlan according to computer/user group. In some case the user vlan could be different from the computer vlan (ex admin account connecting to a user account). This works great with ACS.I tested the same function with ISE and the behaviour is a bit different :
- When the computer boot, I can see the computer account being authenticated on ISE. The logs show the AD groups the computer belongs to and the Authorization profile is well applied according to the AD group.
- When the user login, I can see the user account being authenticated on ISE, BUT the logs show the AD groups of the previous authentication, the one belonging to the computer not the user. So the authorization profile is the one from the computer not the user.
It seems that the AD group attributes are not well updated :
- AD logs show the second authentication doesn't engage a new group parsing from AD - Shutting down the switch port when user is logged engage a new authentication a AD group are well updated. - Bug toolkit reference the same bug but for WLC CSCto83897 so I suspect it's present in other case.
802.1x is working properly, 802.1x port is up,but;when I do a remote desktop to machine that is 802.1x authenticated by an user(Wired), first, login to pc successfuly then(3 minutes) is switch port down..
I would like to configure RADIUS authentication and authorization in ASA 8.2 (ADSM 6.2) by configuring Cisco anyconnect VPN client connection profile.So the end result would be user enters his username, password and a token in any connect client, then the RADIUS server validates this information and sends the user attributes to ASA upon successful authentication.I would be grateful if i can get the step by step procedure to achieve this:The below is what iam trying to do:
1) Create an AAA server group. 2) Add the AAA server to this group (here its RADIUS). 3) create an LDAP-cisco ASA group mapping (for authorization) 3) Add a group policy and create IP pool. (We can add two types of group policies, one is internal and external. Not sure which one to select here). 4) create a any connect vpn client connection profile. Here we specify the created server group name, IP pool and group policy.(While creating a connection profile, it asks us to select an interface. As of now i have only one interface which is "inside". Not sure what the interface "outside" means).
I recently upgraded to Windows 7 in my company and the OS came bundled with Anyconnect VPN client version 2.5.
In the earlier version I used to add user profile using a .pcf file by importing it into the client to access customer LAN.
But in the Anyconnect VPN client I dint find any option to import the file. The IT support has told to edit the xml file to add it. The problem is I even after i edit the anyconnect-cert.xml with changes in host name and host address tags I am not able to start a connection. I dont knw know exactly what address must be given in Host address tag. I copied the host address from .pcf file which i used earlier.
Whether I will be able to add a user profile in this way or any correction is to be done in the whole process of adding the user profile,
Prior to version 8.4(1) Cisco called their licensing name for SSL/VPN users AnyConnect Premium SSL VPN and currently the new name of the licensing is simply AnyConnect Premium. Also, the IOS display name for the amount of SSL/VPN users enabled via your licensing (ex. 2, 10, 25, 50, ...) by running a 'show activation-key' was changed from SSL VPN Peers to AnyConnect Premium Peers.With that said, my question is if the license for upgrading 10 users to 25 users (L-ASA-SSL-10-25= - ASA 5500 SSL VPN 10 to 25 Premium User Upgrade License) on an ASA prior to 8.4(1) and an ASA with 8.4(1) is still valid and the correct part number to peform these upgrades for both ASAs. The description of this part number is throwing me off because it says SSL VPN to Premium User, which was the name prior to 8.4(1). I could not locate any documentation regarding this part number or upgrading 10 users to 25 users for both ASAs.
I am trying to setup a VPN with AnyConnect on my ASA5510 and it works fine. I have setup an AAA server group for my Active Directory with the "NT Domain" protocol". Right now, every user is able to connect with their Active Directory credentials. I would like to restrict access to the Anyconnect VPN to only a few users in AD.
it's probably just me but I have tried real hard to get a simple AnyConnect setup working in a lab environment on my ASA 5505 at home, without luck. When I connect with the AnyConnect client I get the error message "User not authorized for AnyConnect Client access, contact your administrator". I have searched for this error and tried some of the few solutions out there, but to no avail. I also updated the ASA from 8.4.4(1) to 9.1(1) and ASDM from 6.4(9) to 7.1(1) but still the same problem.
The setup of the ASA is straight forward, directly connected to the Internet with a 10.0.1.0 / 24 subnet on the inside and an address pool of 10.0.2.0 / 24 to assign to the VPN clients. Please note that due to ISP restrictions, I'm using port 44455 instead of 443. I had AnyConnect working with the SSL portal, but IKEv2 IPsec is giving me a headache. I have stripped down certificate authentication which I had running before just to eliminate this as a potential cause of the issue. When running debugging, I do not get any error messages - the handshake completes successfully and the local authentication works fine as well.
I have a Cisco ASA5510 firewall that has SSL Web VPN functionality and is utilizing AD Server as Authentication server for users.However, we have a policy to change password at certain point of time. Users in the office have no problem. They just login their PC and change password. Users outside of office is a pain when their password is expired. Is it posible for them to change their AD password thru VPN using Cisco Anyconnect?

2 x ASA5520 with SSM20 . using AnyConnect 3 , users are not getting disconnected from ASA even after the vpn client is closed . Users would not be able to login from the same ip until the session is active. Manual clearing of the session enable the user to log back in .
I have a query regarding MAC authentication for end systems on ASA 5520. Inspite of proving MAC address in endpoint authentication along with AAA, only AAA attribute policies are getting created. MAC authentication is not happening.
Is there any requirement like LDAP or AD is required for MAC authentication?
I have an ASA 5520 soft 8.2(3) when i try to configure the any connect I don't get the SSL and the telnet options for the connection. bare in mind that i don't have the any connect software on my asa nor do i have any certificate. is it essential to get a certificate. do i have to buy it knowing that it will only be used by our company's partners. if not how do i get it
We are currently using Cisco VPN Client. I'm looking to migrate to Cisco Any Connect. Our ASA 5520 has 750 IPSec and 2 SSL license. I also have approximately 40 IPSec site to site VPN's on this. ,Will anyconnect interfere with the site to site tunnels?,If I setup anyconnect with the IPSec instead of SSL do I still need to purchase the premium or essentials license?,Lets say if I do have to get the license and I get essentials will it cause any issues with the site to site VPNs?
We have an ASA 5520 with two VPN profiles working fine.Since some users are now working with Windows 8, VPN clients for Cisco ASA is not able to connect.I have read there are problems for such VPN Clients in that OS, and I should use now Anyconnect for them to connect. I thought we had anyconnect working also, because some users can connect to a web page they can do some kind of connections to internal servers, (web, telnet, rdp, etc) so I installed cisco anyconnect VPN client in a laptop and try to connect (same IP and port I used for that web page) but after signing I get the message AnyConnect is not enabled on the VPN Server.So I tried to follow a configuration guide for Anyconnect, but there's a step in which I am trapped, these are the steps: Click Configuration, and then click Remote Access VPN.
My client is upgrading from anyconnect 2.5.2014 to 3.1.00495. The ASA is running ASA 5520 version 8.2(5)33 and is in an active/standby failover pair.when trying to push out the new 3.1 from the pair to windows 7 and XP machines, he gets the error "Failed to get configuration from secure gateway. Contact your system administrator". When he tries to push 2.5.2014 and 2.5.6005 out from the pair this works fine.When pushing the 3.1 out from a stand-alone test ASA 5520 it works fine.
We have bought L-ASA-AC-PH-5520=Anyconnect Vpn Phone License for our Cisco Phones but when we entered this license into our ASA it shows th following i.e enabled for linksys phones. Is there a diff part no to enable vpn for cisco phones. [code]
We currently are using the anyconnect client using certificates for authentication (ASA 5520 v8.4). It works pretty good but I can only get it to work on a profile basis on the clients laptops. We are running windows 7 and if multiple users need VPN i have to install the certificate for each user. I have changed the xml profile to read the certificate store to "all" and true for certificate store override. I am installing the certificate in the trusted root certificate store. Is there a way for the anyconnect to authenticate for all profiles (users) for the laptop?
I have an ASA 5520 and I am having trouble getting the AnyConnect VPN authentication timeout feature to work properly. I thought I did have it working a couple of months ago, but right now it is not giving me more than the default 12 seconds. I have tried intervals of anywhere from 25 seconds up to 120. I am currently runnign version 6.4 on the ASA and AnyConnect 2.5.3055.
We currently have a setup where users connect to the inside of a firewall using the ipsec client. We are moving them to the anyconnect client but are unable to get it to work, we cannot even get a webvpn page on the inside.
When trying to connect with anyconnect the ASA reports an IKE initiator fail on the inside. and no tcp connection flag. We cannot get any response with Webvpn either I have tried using a different tcp port on webvpn but then the asa denies the traffic even though there are no rules denying.
I am setting up Clientless Anyconnect on ASA 5520. I have a Verisign Cert but when I go to Certificate Management-->CA Certificates-->Add, I put everything in and click "install certificate" I get an error. FYI I have the Primary Cert Authority Installed already?
We upgraded and re-configured two existing ASA5520 platforms in order to provide an SSL VPN solution for one of our customers.
The customer opted to deploy AnyConnect Essentials the functionality / features they required for day one were catered for in the Essentials license and budget constraints meant Premium licensing could not be included in the original deployment.
The licenses added to the system were: L-ASA-AC-E-5520= AnyConnect Essentials VPN License - ASA 5520 (750 Users) ASA-AC-M-5520 AnyConnect Mobile - ASA 5520 (req. Essentials or Premium)
The customer is now seeing a growing number of mobile devices and wishes to support the BYOD culture growing within the business; as a result we now need to use features available in AnyConnect Premium. I am aware from reading the following document [URL] that AnyConnect Essentials and Premium licenses cannot co-exist on an ASA; I need to ensure we purchase the appropriate upgrade for the customer.
Is there an SKU to upgrade / migrate an existing Essentials deployment to Premium? I've reviewed the licensing guide and price list but cannot find a method which enables this transition.
I currently have a Cisco 5520 ASA which is up and running and the users are able to connect to Anyconnect to VPN into the network. However, users plugged into the internal network inside the ASA are unable to connect to the vpn address and download the Anyconnect Client. I think this may be to do with reverse NAT missing?
